Hopefully the photos will show up once they've been moderated. (I'm still new 'round these parts. 8-)

I have been questioned maybe 2X, once by a security guard at a museum and once at Target by an over-zealous mgr. They both said basically "do you need that thing" and I said "yep, it's my wheelchair" and they said " have a good day." I think it's a great idea to keep the regs handy in case you end up needing it. Just being prepared, you give the impression you know more than they do and they invariably back down and go away.
Good for you! The more people who go out and about with their EPMADs, the easier it will be or all of us. I'm still learning to ride mine well enough to venture into public. It would be awful to explain the ADA to someone and then go plowing into someone or something.
